Treadway named to national workplace bullying academy

Published May 29, 2014

Darren Treadway, associate professor of organization and human resources in the School of Management, has been named a founding fellow to the U.S. Academy on Workplace Bullying, Mobbing and Abuse.

The academy is a joint initiative between the Workplace Bullying Institute and the New Workplace Institute. It supports and promotes the multidisciplinary work of leading and emerging educators, researchers, practitioners, writers and advocates dedicated to understanding, preventing, stopping and responding to workplace bullying and related forms of interpersonal mistreatment.

“Studies have shown that many as half of all employees in the U.S. have witnessed bullying at work and 25 percent have been the target of bullying,” says Treadway. “I look forward to bringing my research on bullying, victimization and abusive supervision to the academy to help find solutions for these critical issues in the American workplace.”

Treadway was named faculty affiliate to UB’s Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention in 2013. His research on bullying in the workplace has received international media recognition.

Published May 22, 2014

UB staff members received several awards at the recent annual meeting of the National Association of Graduate Admission Professionals.

The Office of Graduate Enrollment Management Services (GEMS) team of Holly Acito, Lisa Coia, Christopher Connor, Troy Joseph, Alex Nelson, Lee Ann Radwan and Michael Russo won the Promotion of Excellence Award, which recognizes a new or existing methodology that clearly demonstrates best practices for other graduate enrollment management professionals. 

The award recognizes two UB initiatives: an institution-wide, self-managed, paperless admissions process and a data-driven social media and communications plan.

Connor, assistant dean for graduate enrollment management services, also received the Building Bridges Award, presented to an organization or individual who champions the issues of access and equity in graduate education. 

He was recognized for leading efforts to successfully coordinate and consolidate what had been a complex graduate and professional admissions process into a single, uniform process and system while being mindful of the individuality of each academic program.
